The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite.

There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium.

You can see what's coming five minutes into the movie, but capable acting lends it a certain superficial charm.

Warm-hearted but clear-eyed indie effort richly repays audience patience during deliberately paced and provocatively allusive early scenes with a cumulative emotional impact that is immensely satisfying.

An overly ambitious, overly complex and overly long opus that bites off more than it can chew.

Schaeffer, known for the quirky romantic comedies, goes a more serious route in this disappointing anthology of stories about love and forgiveness.

In the crass, endless Mind the Gap, Schaeffer dares to ape Magnolia, telling five barely connected stories with all the grace of a juggler tossing open bottles of Drano.
